I'm still on the "I hope hay stacking is the FF task" train unless proven otherwise. I don't see Dave/Rachel and Joey/Danny in any of those previews, so they may very well be the two teams who went for it? If this is the case, then we know what happens. Dave/Rachel is 1st (again... :res:) and Joey/Danny are eliminated because they're too far behind to catch up. :'(

Also, this clue may have been given in the fire temple, and teams could go for it first thing in the morning (similar to the TAR3 FF on leg 1 that the Oh Brothers won).

That's a very good idea. And what joy it would be to see more than one FF per race come back!!

We know it isn't the Detour. We know it isn't the RB. Can't be a Route Info with only two teams trying it.

And logistically I think the Firetower is 20+kms's from Baku central so perhaps there are fields out there ...

I like it!!

I would love another FF, but I hope it just isn't literally stacking hay, unless there is some really unique Azerbaijani way of doing it.

When Vanessa reads the route info (back in Germany), she mentions "bazaar." Unless there's a bazaar in Fussen, we may need to re-work the task order. Do we have the flights they arrived on?

She's yelling out "Azerbaijan"...  ;)

It would be awesome to see another Fast Forward battle with first place or elimination on the line!

Slowhatch,

No, there are maybe 50 daily flight combinations from Frankfurt to Baku and about the same for Munich to Baku. Most of those combinations connect at Istanbul. There is one nonstop Frankfurt to Baku. See the AR20 Transport thread for the one best flight each from Frankfurt and from Munich.

Spec. so far ....

1. RI : Fly to Azerbaijan, once there, make your way to Atashgah Fire Temple and search the ground for your next clue...

2. RB : OTI-HUET Helicopter Simulation / Underwater Evacuation

3. RI : Make your way to Carpet Shop?, Old Town Baku (Icheri Sherer) - possibly searching clue inside the carpet rolls...

4. DT A : Proceed to Teze Bazaar and find the clue amongst hundreds of apples stack....

5. DT B : Proceed to Naftalan Health Centre and scrub oil to get their next clue....

6. PS : Baku Pier (in front of Baku Carpet Museum)



DT A Location is not confirmed, still spec.



I really hope that the spec. is true, then it looks like a great leg!!!! :yess: :yess: :yess: :yess:

There's a new clip from the episode showing Phil giving his stand-up/description of the "Oil" Detour option.  It also shows Art & JJ, Bopper & Mark, and Brendon & Rachel doing the "Oil" Detour.

I love weird and unique tasks, but I'm not sure how well this leg will go. The apple Detour seems great, but scraping oil seems a little overboard to me. I guess when the episode airs, I'll be able to make a better judgement of it, but I'm a little apprehensive at the moment... :duno:
1. Don't pick up the phone - You know he's only calling 'cause he's drunk and alone.
2. Don't let him in - You have to kick him out again.
3. Don't be his friend - You know you're gonna wake up in his bed in the morning.
And if you're under him, you ain't gettin' over him. ♥

I don't see anything indicating a fast forward. The one fast forward we got in episode 4 is likley the only one that will appear this season.

The only clue is Phil not saying that was the only FF in the entire race... we'll see.

Dave\Rachel and Joey\Danny are the only teams seen doing the hay task. It's also a plausible explanation as to why Fitness is eliminated after several good placements.

Haku speculated it based on the lack of a hay Detour or Roadblock

NO ONE has been seen doing a hay task. In fact NO hay task has been seen at all yet unless I am behind since this morning...

Yes we can spec that these two teams are doing it due to lack of being seen elsewhere, and a FF seems a very valid reason...but let's all try to be accurate please so the casual readres dont get confused. :lol:

it makes no sense that either of those two teams would be doing the hay stack. neither team was penalized, and there can't possibly be another FF. therefore, since it's not in the previews I've seen, you're shooting blanks man. i imagine dave doing so well on the helicopter challenge, which i just read from this forum and haven't seen anthing for real...joey and danny being the most likely to sleep in...and having those two teams come in first and last this week.

just talking about what seems like an plausible option. however, it is a distinct possibility that both rachel and dave and joey fitness sleep in and are in last place as a result. or, they're both kicking butt...or...one is kicking butt and one is completely losing...or...they can't possibly show every team...or...there is a fast forward...or...etc. so, really, this forum is not helping much =). making me think more than i want. but honestly i like these speculations. all of the tasks were on the preview after the show this past sunday.
